The Biblical evidence is too overwhelming and specific to be wrong. Christ's people can look with great confidence to this date because God promises His "beloved" He will not come upon them as a thief in the night. God in His mercy has revealed the vital information needed to know the day. Judgment Day on May 21, 2011 will occur because the bible declares it. Anyone whom God has not saved will arrive at that day with no hope for salvation. God warns simply the "door will be shut."
If he was a huge leftist he’d be treated as a hero.

Sadly, people like Camping give Christians a bad name. NO one knows when Jesus will return except the Father! It is silly & foolish to make predictions like this which will not come true. It is not a good thing.
I think Camping did all this before in the 1990s, if I recall correctly.
Just did a big “Never mind” afterwards.
It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine!
I suppose if people keep guessing they will be right one of these days!
I’m just tuning in to this....so guess I don’t have long to wait. Isn’t tomorrow May 21?
My wife was traveling on business this week and received a copy of USA Today at the hotel (trash, we read the WSJ). On Wednesday FamilyRadio had a full page ad all about “Judgement Day”. I just can’t fathom how many get suckered into such idiocy.
It’ll be pretty funny if the world ended today instead.
I think Camping is 100% wrong. Jesus did say he would come as a thief in the night, and did not promise his “Beloved” no such exemption.
That being said, the tone of the article is one of the big problems that the Western world faces. They don’t believe anyone “really” believes. They think everyone is running a scam. They think is anyone can make a dime off of religion... well, isn’t that what religion and belief has always been about?
There IS one good thing about this whole thing: After May 21, FamilyRadio (not to be confused with American Family Radio, which is a solid, fundamentalist Christian organization)) should cease to exist - their leader and all of their supporters will either be gone or too embarrassed to come into the daylight (although they should have ceased to exist in 1994 when his first prophecy proved to be false).
I’m wearing running shoes, blue jeans, a comfy Hawaiian shirt, and taking cigars with me... just in case.
Yep, amassing money when you think the world will end soon is a sure sign of something being amiss.
How can a guy wrote a story about them and have so little insight into what they believe?
So I’d be OK if I don’t bother to mow the grass for one more day?
“Judgment Day on May 21, 2011 will occur because the bible declares it”
Hmmm. Does he cite a book, chapter and verse?
I am very concerned for Mr. Camping and his followers. His Bible understanding is flawed and he is preaching a flawed message. He and his believers are in danger of suffering a grave spiritual crisis.
“A wise man’s heart discerns both time and judgement” Ecc. 8:5 is the basis for his entire doctrine, and yet this passage is found in the context of how a God-fearing man ought to respond to a worldly king. Romans 13 is very similar to this passage in ideas.
When a person begins a preaching stance on scripture that has been taken out of context, he/she always runs the risk of becoming out of sink with the whole of the teachings of the inspired Word.
Those who have more rightly divided the Word of Truth need to be prepared to help the many who will suffer spiritual disillusion because of Mr. Camping’s false teaching.
Hope Camping doesn’t kill himself in embarrassment on May 22.
I’d like to see him stick around for the crow dinner.
